Across Japan, recent decades have seen a surge in the number of seniors living alone, with the issue of isolation further compounded by the pandemic. Goto Manabu operates a video chat service that connects seniors in need of meaningful interaction with foreign users eager to learn about Japanese language, culture and customs. And as well as promoting cross-border, cross-generational communication, the service also connects Japanese speakers with domestic firms in search of international talent.
